Subject: [PATCH] mm: Provide consistent declaration for num_poisoned_pages
Date: Mon, 26 Feb 2018 15:09:25 -0800
Message-ID: <> (raw)

clang reports the following compile warning.

In file included from mm/vmscan.c:56:
./include/linux/swapops.h:327:22: warning:
	section attribute is specified on redeclared variable [-Wsection]
extern atomic_long_t num_poisoned_pages __read_mostly;
./include/linux/mm.h:2585:22: note: previous declaration is here
extern atomic_long_t num_poisoned_pages;

Let's use __read_mostly everywhere.
